staff. It has a very good collection of Lillian Ream photographs (local photographer who lived very close by) depicting the area in times past. Its opening hours on a Monday are short, and its computer systems are very slow, using a very old OS. Aside from that, it's worth a visit if from out of town for the photos alone.

It is quite small, but is a nice one. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Seen screen with multilingual options (seen Albanian, Lithuanian, Polish but there was more for sure). Quick registration and you can access computers, printers and etc.

The library is a very pleasant, light building in the town centre, near the Georgian circle which was used for the filming of David Copperfield with Nicholas Lyndhurst. It is on two floors and has computers for public use. There are a variety of reading matter including local interest.

Unusual these days, this library was ideally quiet as I needed to swot up on a few subjects for a course I was attending
